The bathroom is a very important room that everyone has to visit. This is the room that gets you and your family ready to greet the world on a daily basis. As a result, it is very important that it is properly lighted to send you on your way looking your best. This room above all the others is more than likely to be visited by guests when they stop by from time to time.
Lighting for the bath come in two options: either those who are already incorporated in the furnishings, or those you buy separately. Choose a filament lamp bulb for a small cost, in a bright colour, similar to natural light. Choose a spotlight if you want something to consume less energy, but a bigger price than a bulb. And if you choose the neon light take into consideration the colder light and the higher price.
Now consider your bathroom space. You can try drawing the layout on a piece of paper. Indicate the natural light sources, such as your window and start putting ideas on the paper. Consider the various kinds of lamps available today, and where you can put them in the room. Have a main source installed. You can use this at night when natural daylight is absent. Next would be your secondary source, for your accent lighting. These are the bulbs that you can also use during the day to tie the lighting of the room together.
Task lighting: Task lighting should allow you to groom yourself efficiently, not create shadows and special effects, although no doubt it's fine if you can easlily incorporate those suitably in your lights arrangements. For task lighting around the mirror, place the light fittings on each side of it. The lighting should illuminate the person before the mirror rather than focus on the mirror. Generally speaking, the lights should illuminate your face fully and minimize shadows under your eyes and chin. It's also possible to wish to install lighting inside the bathroom cabinets so it is easier to consider things placed inside. Also install lighting fixtures over the bath area and toilet.
